William Price Thomas

It appears that the Thomas family sailed on the Joseph Badger on 17 October-23 November 1850 from Liverpool to New Orleans.  Their first known child that was born in Utah was in 1853 according to the 1860 census.  It appears that the Thomas family traveled to Utah between 1850 and 1853.  According to the Joseph Badger ship manifest, the Thomas family included William and his wife Margaret, and their children John, Evan, David, and William.

At the end of a mission, William returned home with the John W. Berry Company in 1858.
